Danny's strength, courage and wicked sense of humour were such admirable traits. On the many visits to Arbour Heights we were assured to bump into him somewhere - for a chat, a laugh or talk guitar! May the memories he created soften the grief and comfort his family at this most difficult and sad time.😔 Play amongst the stars Danny ! You'll be missed!

Roy McConnell - September 11, 2021

My nephew, Danny, was born with severe Spina Bifida. He was paralyzed from the waste down and was in a wheelchair his whole life. Over the course of his life he had over 100 operations and many medical procedures. However, through all of that, whenever I visited him he always had a smile and was very engaging. He loved people and constantly reached out through FB messenger to chat with family and friends. He was a special light in our lives. He will be missed but I believe his light will always burn bright in our hearts and minds.

Susan Campbell - September 11, 2021

Deepest condolences to the family at this most difficult time. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Katherine Kelly - September 10, 2021
